The south coast club were given the lifeline after they proved to the Premier League that they no longer owed cash to other clubs.

Pompey's troubled season faces yet another test on Friday, however, when the club's players are due to be paid.
There is growing uncertainty that Pompey will be able to meet the deadline. If so it will be the fourth time this season that the players and staff have not been paid on time.
